Image Trivia Thread 18 Candles

This is a Trivia Image Thread.

CANDLES

TRIVIA RULES: Read BEFORE taking part

1. Remember you only get to answer one of the questions or your answers will all be ignored through the post.

2. If you guess once and are wrong then you cannot answer again this thread UNLESS it is a 'trick question' which will be clearly designated as one.

3. Only the first correct answer is awarded the points

4. If you answer one of the following correct and get points below then you will not be awarded points on the next days play (We wish to give every one a fair shot) Your names will be marked clearly so you can see...… but feel free to join in.

5. I am looking for specific answers. If you have not given those, even if nearly correct, you do not get points.

I actually had here two beeswax candles made for me at a renaissance fair
